Elton Dean (1945 – 2006) was an English jazz musician who performed on alto saxophone and saxello. Dean established his reputation as a member of the Keith Tippett Sextet from 1968 to 1970, and in the band Soft Machine from 1969 to 1972. From 1975 to 1978 he led a nine-piece band called Ninesense. In 2002, Dean and three other former Soft Machine members (Hopper, Marshall, and Holdsworth) toured and recorded under the name Soft Works. Dean’s playing style could be equally tonal or atonal; his forays into rock with Soft Machine feature a pioneering use of extreme amplification.
